    So somehow, I'm not sure how, I've managed to get a really small bead stuck under one of my arrow keys on my laptop, which obviously is stopping it from being pressed!
    I can see it... but I'm not sure how to go about getting it out?
    If I take the whole key off to get it out that way, will it just clip back on again, or will it have to stay off? Any advice?

    As long as you're careful and not too violent with it, yes if you take the whole key off then it'll fit back on perfectly and without any bother. Alternatively you could try shaking the laptop wildly over your head for a few seconds and see if it gets dislodged, if you can see it you can try poking it out with a needle, or if you never want to see the bead again you could try vacuuming it out :p:
